When you walk through the clinic door, "Katie" , the cat on the copy machine might acknowledge you by lifting her head. The senior Australian Shepherd "Sweetie" and Golden Retriever "Nacho", however, are too relaxed to notice.
Dr. Larry Wood and his staff are animal lovers, and they seem to collect the ones who need them the most.
Originally from Indiana, Dr. Wood moved with his family to Texas in 1960. He received his Bachelor and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degrees from Texas A&M, graduating in 1967.
Joining the Army after graduation, Dr. Wood served in the Scout Dog program in Fort Bening, Georgia from 1967 to 1969. He was awarded two Army Commendations as well as a Distinguished Service Medal for his contributions during the Vietnam War.
Dr. Wood opened his clinic at 410 & Harry Wurzbach in 1976, and has been called "A country vet in the middle of the city." He enjoys riding cutting horses and collects western antiques...especially old spurs.
